Your question is unclear. Could you please clarify a bit more what you're asking here?
Dear Infopro,

Opening a file in File Manager, deploying through Secure Shell, testing and attempting save (effectively restoring an opened copy), by default, seemingly results in preventing saving file.

Wondering how one may achieve file change detection in save allowance.

Regards,

Could you walk us through the step-by-step instructions for each part of the process so we can reproduce the issue? Please include as many details as possible.

Thanks!
Dear cPanelMichael,

For reproduction steps:
  1. Perform cPanel login.
  2. Open File Manager.
  3. Select a file.
    1. If a file does not already exist, create a file.
      1. Click + File.
      2. Type file name.
      3. Click Create New File.
  4. Click Edit.
    1. If Text Editor prompt shows, review, then click Edit.
  5. Edit file via another method.
    1. Secure Shell.
      1. Edit via 'vi' and command write :)w).
      2. Deploy via shell script.
    2. Open another editor instance (steps 3-4).
      1. Make changes.
      2. Click Save Changes.
  6. Return original editor.
  7. Attempt saving (click Save Changes).
    1. This step, if allowed without changes, may return previous state.
    2. Seemingly, additional changes necessary in allowing save.
Regards,

Anthony Brian Mallgren

Hello,

There's currently no functionality that will detect changes to existing files and prompt a warning message that notifies users of those changes before saving files via File Manager. I recommend opening a feature request for this via:

Submit A Feature Request

Thank you.
